Honor your hero with thoughts, memories, images and stories.
I love you baby and miss you more than anything. You were an amazing husband, father, friend and soldier. Thank you so much for our girls, they are amazing and they're what keeps me going in this life without you. You always were and always will be my heart, my soul, my everything. I love you.
Eric, you've been a GREAT leader as a father, husband, and soldier. The times we've served together have been memorable and I will never forget you as long as I live. You've always been the Army version of the class clown. The times where we have been unmotivated, down in our luck, misreable, and heartbroken, especially with the death of SFC Chevalier, you were there to cheer us up and make us laugh and smile again. When my kids get older, they will know who you are and what kind of person you are - a leader, a soldier, and a person who paid the ultimate sacrifice to insure our countries freedom for all citizens and mankind. Audrey, I wish I can express in words how truly heartbroken I am with the loss of a wonderful husband to you and a terrific father to your girls. I am greatful and appreciative of his sacrifice to our country and I thank you for allowing him to serve the greatest nation on earth. I admire your strong will to carry on his memory and the strength you have to move forward in your life without him. Surely, your strong will has inspired many people including myself to appreciate life and to never take things for granted. Thank you for all that you do. You are, and forever will be family to me and everyone else that he has served with. God bless you, your family, Eric and his family as well.
Erik, I did not know you that well. I abserved your Love for your wife an children. My daughter and son in law Loved you very much. I saw you laugh and smile. I was lucky enough to meet you briefly. I feel blessed. I know that you are in a wonderful place. Thank you so much for your service to this country. As I told you the last day, I will pray for you. I now pray for your Audrey and your little girls.
I will always remember how you find the humor any crappy situation. You always brought something special to the company. I will never forget you.
